Sand is dumped such that the shape of the sandpile


Asked by wiki @ in Mathematics viewed by 104 People


5. Sand is dumped off a conveyor belt into a pile at the rate of 2 cubic feet per minute. The sand pile is shaped like a cone whose height and base diameter are always equal. At what rate is the height of the pile growing when the pile is 5 feet high? (The volume of a cone is fr2h where r is the radius of the base and h is the height:)​

Differentiating with respect to time

Basic Power Rule:

  • f(x) = cxⁿ
  • f’(x) = c·nxⁿ⁻¹

Step-by-step explanation:

Step 1: Define

\displaystyle \frac{dV}{dt} = 2 \ ft^3/min\\b = h\\h = 5 \ ft

Step 2: Rewrite Volume Formula

We need to rewrite the cone volume formula in terms of height h only.

Base b = diameter d of the circular base

  1. Define:                    b = d
  2. Substitute:              b = 2r

We are given that the base of the cone is the same as the height.

  1. Define:                    b = 2r
  2. Substitute:              h = 2r

Now solve for height.

  1. Divide 2 on both sides:                    h/2 = r
  2. Rewrite expression:                          r = h/2

Now find new volume formula.

  1. Define [VC]:                    \displaystyle V = \frac{1}{3} \pi r^2h
  2. Substitute:                      \displaystyle V = \frac{1}{3} \pi (\frac{h}{2})^2h
  3. Exponents:                     \displaystyle V = \frac{1}{3} \pi (\frac{h^2}{4})h
  4. Multiply:                          \displaystyle V = \frac{1}{12} \pi h^3

We now have the same volume formula in terms of height h only.

Step 3: Differentiate

  1. Basic Power Rule:                                                                                           \displaystyle \frac{dV}{dt}  = \frac{1}{12} \pi \cdot 3 \cdot h^{3-1} \frac{dh}{dt}
  2. Simplify:                                                                                                           \displaystyle \frac{dV}{dt}  = \frac{1}{4} \pi h^{2} \frac{dh}{dt}

Step 4: Solve for height rate

  1. Substitute:                     \displaystyle 2 \ ft^3/min  = \frac{1}{4} \pi (5 \ ft)^{2} \frac{dh}{dt}
  2. Isolate h rate:                \displaystyle \frac{2 \ ft^3/min}{\frac{1}{4} \pi (5 \ ft)^{2}} = \frac{dh}{dt}
  3. Exponents:                    \displaystyle \frac{2 \ ft^3/min}{\frac{1}{4} \pi (25 \ ft^2)} = \frac{dh}{dt}
  4. Multiply:                         \displaystyle \frac{2 \ ft^3/min}{\frac{25}{4} \pi \ ft^2} = \frac{dh}{dt}
  5. Divide:                           \displaystyle \frac{8}{25 \pi} \ ft/min = \frac{dh}{dt}
  6. Rewrite:                         \displaystyle \frac{dh}{dt} = \frac{8}{25 \pi} \ ft/min

Here this tells us that the rate at which the height is moving at a rate of 0.101859 feet per minute.
